About Ice Fishing

Ice fishing is a fun and exotic experience for both the local people and visitors new to Lapland alike. Each year the lakes and rivers in Lapland freezes in the beginning of winter and melts only at the end of spring. During this period the only way to fish and get food from the waters are by fishing on ice or using winter nets.

Surrounded by the peaceful and breathtaking natural environment and wilderness, you can enjoy the true essence of winter fishing.
